To all who have helped make this Annual, especially to the pupils, who have so 
willingly furnished portraits of themselves (and others) ; to the photographer whose “Look 
pleasant, please ” has been so effective ; to the faculty for their advice and assistance ; to 
the Medina business men whose generous advertising has made it a financial success; to 
the A. T. Root printers, whose courtesy and patience has been unsurpassed, the Editorial 
Board says a heartfelt “ We thank you.” 

The present standing of the Me- 
dina H. S., the loyalty of its Alum- 
ni, and the honors they have won, is 
an ample testimonial of the work of 
its former superintendents.

Text: Send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me; let them lead me unto thy holy hill and to 
thy tabernacles. — P sai.m 43:3. 

It is a good tiling to know well the world in which we live. It is no idle task for us to 
learn to know well our relation to the world of nature about us or our place in the succes- 
sion of generations of men. For it is only thus that we can use to the full the rich heritage 
left us by the generations that have been, or can do wisely for the generations which shall 
be. Nature will not be used in just any way that caprice may indicate. She has her own 
ways. Out of these she will not be coaxed nor bullied. We work in her way or we do not 
work with her at all. And our own age has its own significance. To try to read into it 
the significance of some past age or the supposed meaning of some age to come, is to work 
our destruction. Only by having a true setting for our lives, both from the material and 
the psychical standpoints, is it possible for our lives to be useful. Our lives must square 
with the universe about us: the universe of nature and of men. Those lives are legion in 
number which promised much because of native strength but which failed because their 
setting was untrue. So we will repeat — it is well for us to know well the world in which 
we live. 



So marked has been the effect upon humanity of a recognition of this truth, that the 
line of cleavage between civilization and barbarism is clearly seen to be drawn in relation 
to it. The people who learn to know the world in which they live are the nations who are 
in the van of the world’s life. They who do not know their world are straggling somewhere 
in the rear. And thus it has always been. The burden which has rested upon the world 
because of ignorance is simply incalculable. It is a tremendous loss for a nation not to 
know its soils or the particular phases of nature with which it comes into contact. It is a 
terrible thing for a nation to be dependent for its physical well being upon the physician 
who does not know. It is an awful bondage for a people to have as its lawmakers men 
who do not know history or economics. It is a terrible thing for a nation to have as its 
teachers men who are themselves untaught. It is an awful thing for a nation to have as its 
religious leaders men who are themselves lost in their superstitions. I or when these tilings 
occur, individuals, communities, and nations will find that somehow the powers of nature 
are working against them. In some waj^ or another, their labor comes to nothing. Even 
tho they do not understand the causes of their defeat, yet the defeat itself will be written 
large in their lives in mental and physical suffering. 

So the place of the school is fixed and sure in human life. It is well for us to train 
our senses to the limit of our powers, so that we may indeed see, and hear, and feel, taste, 
smell, and otherwise learn correctly. It is well for us to study the sciences that w 7 e may 
learn what progress other men have made and to conserve the gain unto the generations yet 
to come. It is well for us to train ourselves in the arts, that we may be skillful to use the 
knowledge which we gain. It is well for us to know history and the philosophy which 
history teaches, in order that we may be able to choose that which is worth while from t hat 
which is not. For we neglect these things to our own sorrow and to the sorrow of those 
who follow us. The nation which has ceased to revere its teachers will soon cease to pro- 
duce them. And the nation which ceases to produce its teachers will soon have no real 
leaders. And then intellectual darkness, gross and dense, settles on the land and men 
suffer unduly and labor in vain. 

But when all this is said and allowed life will teach us anoi tier lesson. It is that there 
is such a thing as devoting ourselves too exclusively to the world which lies about us and 
to our relation with, and thereby neglecting another world which lies within us. One hun- 
dred years ago the poet Wordsworth, who was to usher in a new age in English literature, 
was saying: 

“The world is too much with us: late and soon 

Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers. 

Little we see in nature that is ours; 

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon.” 

After a while, England awoke and made him, the seer, her poet laureate. Is it thus with 
us? A generation ago, Matthew Arnold, a mind of keen appreciations, traveled among us 
and said of us as he left our shores: “ America is too beastly prosperous. In one of his 
late books, Professor Muensterberg, who is at the head of the department of philosophy 
at Harvard University, writes thus: “ There is an uneasy feeling pervading our times that 
the age has lost its meaning.” Last year we greeted Professor Eucken, the renewer of 
Idealism in Germany, as a man with a new message when he told us that the philosophy 
and life of materialism was a delusion and a snare. Why should this be greeted as a new 
message? Why should there be any uneasy feeling pervading the life of our times? Are 
we not rich? Certainly. Are we not prosperous, when measured by material standards? 
To be sure. Is there any immediate danger of real material need? Not at all. Then 
why are some of our leading thinkers uneasy? Because they feel that for a large portion 
of our nation, life has lost its significance. For an important fraction of our people there 
is no longer any reason to do things or to get them done. There is no longer an apprecia- 
tion of our place or worth in the world. They have lost the sense of the worth of their 



souls. There is no longer a certainty that things are worth while. We know from the 
history of nations exactly what happens when a nation becomes a people of lost souls. The 
nation itself becomes a lost nation. No props will sustain it. No songs can cheer it. No 
thought can strengthen it. Its labor ceases. And with the labor it too ceases. From our 
own transient moments of despair, we may as individuals get a glimpse of the paralyzing 
effects of the doubt of life’s worth. In the moments when we give up the struggle, when 
hopes give way, the battle itself is stopped. For no one ever struggles valiantly after the 
sense of possible attainment is gone. As it is with individuals, so is it with whole nations ; 
which sheds light upon the fact that all the world’s republics have died rich. Tho wealth 
had increased, the power initiative was lost, and with this the power of advancement. 
Why? Because nothing seemed worth while any more. 

In order that life may have a meaning and shall be best expressed, it is first of all 
necessary that life shall be thoroughly charged with a high purpose. But that which always 
measures the strength of our purpose is our sense of the presence of God in life — in our 
lives and in others. A man coming into the studio of the artist Burne-Jones remarked to 
the painter: “I cannot see the beauty of that thing.” The reply of the artist was: “Do 
you not wish you could? ” This is only one of the evidences that not all persons can see 
the beauty of the many scenes which life presents to us. The beauty is there, but they 
have not the faculty of seeing it. At a recent concert given by Paderewski a man was 
noticed who was evidently drowsing. There was indeed beauty in the music; but the 
man had no ears with which to perceive it. There are a great many people who cannot 
appreciate the beauty of poetry. The beauty is there but they have not been trained to 
feel it. In all these cases, perhaps the persons in question did not have the opportunity 
to have trained in them the necessary sense with which to perceive the particular beauty 
involved. Opportunities are not alike to all people. It may be that they had not the 
patience necessary to stay by the task of development until it should have reached its 
maturity. In either case, something real and worth while was lost to them; something 
upon which the soul can lean for strength when it needs it. 

In like manner, there are undoubtedly persons who do not perceive the spiritual real- 
ities of the world. These realities are present and abide. But the sense by which they are 
perceived has never been developed, or it has been destroyed by the cultivation of opposite 
tendencies, or it has been allowed to atrophy and decay thru sheer neglect. A noted 
astronomer is said to have remarked: “ There is no God; I have searched for him with my 
telescope and there is no room for him.” The story taxes our credulity. It seems that no 
mature persons could speak thus. Almost any child in our Sabbath-schools could have 
told this astronomer that the God of whom we speak simply cannot be found in that way 
at all. A physician once told me that our praying seemed to him like talking at one end 
of a telephone with no one at the other end. In matters of medicine, this man was indeed 
to be trusted ; but in the matter of spiritual realities, he was as a babe. Another man was 
asked in regard to returning thanks at the table and replied: “ I do not believe in talking 
to my potatoes.” 

Now surely something is absent from these lives that other men have considered very 
much worth while. That for which Jesus waited all night long on the lonely mountain or 
in the desert place must surely have been a real thing to him — to him who stilled the 
tempest and made honest persons of publicans. Surely it was a real tiling in his life which 
the great King David was voicing when he wrote : “ The Lord is my shepherd ; I shall not 
want.” Surely it was a real thing to St. Cuthbert, the missionary to Scotland, who driven 
out of the country by the natives took to sea with his few followers. For when one of these 
latter remarked that now every path was closed, St. Cuthbert replied : “ There is yet one 
way open; the way upward.” Surely it was something real which William the Silent, 

®tjr Atuttral 

Netherlands great hero, found to sustain him thru all the long years of the unequal struggle 
of his country with Spain. Sure it was a real thing of which John Stuart Mill writes thus 
to Carlyle: “ I have for years had the very same idea of Christ, and the same unbounded 
reverence for him as now;— which reverence was becoming, or was closely allied with all 
that was becoming, a living principle in my character.” And surely it was a real t ung 
which sustained the dying McKinley as he said: “ Nearer, my God, to thee; it is Ins will, 
not mine.” Surely they miss something who have not learned to perceive these realities foi 

themselves • 

It matters not in what capacity the worth of spiritual realities be tested; they will 

always be found to add strength to life. To see God in the cataract , and not to idly gaze 
upon the wonderful canopy of heaven by night, is to step across one of the marks of 
differentiation between the beast and man. To see God in the flowering fields is not a mark 
of weakness but of strength. It adds meaning to life. Rightly says the poet Tennyson: 

“ Flower in the crannied wall, 

If I could know you, all in all, 
I’d know what God and man is.” 

To see God in the destiny of nations is not to grow confused in thought but rather 
to think more clearly. As the historian reads across the centuries, it becomes clear to him 
that there are forces affecting human destiny which cannot be measured by material stan- 
dards. Somehow, the forces of truth, kindness, justice, patience, honesty, modesty have a 
large place in the development of nations. Their presence or absence is marked tremen- 
dously. For it is the personal life of the nation which makes it either weak or great. 

This is also true of the individual. Is conscience a mark of any individual life? Does 
he speak the truth? Does he insist hard' upon what is right? Does he know how to dis- 
tinguish between the good and the better? Does he know how to suffer foi a piinciple? 
Has he faith, that is, does he know how to be disappointed and still go on? Can he be 
kind? Can he forgive? These and kindred questions measure the difference between men 
as surely as the scales, or the stopwatch, or the yardstick, or the stethoscope. Whether or 
not the man can stand up under such tests eventually means more for him and for the 
humanity of which he is a part, than any other measurements which can be made. And 
always life is teaching us that nothing makes for such moral greatness like personal com- 
munion with Almighty God. 

Whether or not such communion with God shall have a large place in our lives depends 
upon a personal culture of that sort of living. It is not a matter of chance, altlio the point 
of decision to take it up may have seemed so. It is not inherited, altlio certain greatness 
of soul is often passed on from father to son. It is not caught, altlio association with 
devout persons will give incentive to the personal culture upon which devotion depends. 
It is not gotten by training, altlio the child reared by the mother who prays and by the 
Sunday-school teacher has a distinct advantage in being often shown the manner in which 
such communion is begun. But the communion itself is a matter of personal choice and 
will. Some day it will dawn upon the individual soul that this is indeed worth the having. 
At that time, he must decide for himself whether he will seek it. Religiously we call such 
times the moments of decision in which the soul is born again. It comes to different persons 
in different ways; always the decision is demanded. The decision is never postponed with- 
out some loss. Never do spiritual forces which make for righteousness and leadership in 
righteousness among men come into any individual life unless the decision be in the affirm- 
ative. God never bestows his personal presence upon the unwilling recipient. 

My friends of the senior class, our schools have done much for you. Possibly they 
have done all they could do. Yet thruout your lives you will go on learning. Some of you 
will travel at a faster rate than others will go. But I think that all of you will go on. 
Upon your intellectual attainments will depend much of your worth to your age and your 


QIt|p Annual 

country. But today I am praying for you something which the experience of humanity 
has shown to be worth much more than even intellectual greatness. I am praying for you 
greatness of soul. I am praying for you the power to perceive clearly the presence of God 
in your lives and in the world. I want you to thrive in heart. Hitherto, your homes, your 
friends and your churches have done much for you religiously. You have reached the time 
in life when nearly all your growth will depend upon you and upon your decision. I pray 
for you that it may be a really large growth. I want the sense of God to be deep in your 
lives, so that, whether the barks of your lives are carried far out into the stormy seas or 
drift quietly into some sheltered haven, the voyage of life itself may always be safe for 
you. May you never lose the presence of your true pilot, who is God. May his will be your 
chart by which you shall steer. And when the voyage is at last at an end, may you see 
Him as friend sees friend, face to face.

(Haas fSpaturg 


One lazy, dreamy spring day of 1914 I passed the Primary-school building at lecess 
hour. The girls were flitting about, playing “ drop the handfierchie ; the boys, yelling and 
screaming, were “ cracking the whip,” while here and there a group of timid lads stood 
watching them with wistful eyes. At the furthest corner of the yard, seated on the boaid 
fence under the aged weeping-willow, another group was holding consultation just as Ye 
had done so many times before. A feeling of homesickness came over me, and for old times 
sake I crossed the lawn, climbed up, took my former seat on the top board, and leaned 
comfortably back against the tree, as the last child disappeared thru the school door. 
Everything became quiet, and my thoughts wandered back to the recess hours of my child- 
hood days. 

In the midst of our fun, Miss Smith always came down the back steps and tapped her 
bell. Then we reluctantly formed in line and marched back to duty. It was in that same 
building that we made our first papier-mache maps and expressed our gratitude to our 
Pilgrim fathers by giving John Alden and Priscilla dialogues, ending the program by 
devouring big dishes of pop-corn. 

After four years of faithful work we left our old home, took up our abode in the 
high-school building, and, in our struggle with long division, forgot the days of slates and 
watei’-bottles. Patient Mi’s. Meyer took us under her wing, and with her motherly kindness 
guided our young feet for two years, then gave us over to the protection of Miss Drake. 
Under the instruction of Miss Tebbits and Miss Warren we learned to repeat such poems 
as, “ Breathes there a man with soul so dead? ” and to sing the pretty little lullaby, “Sweet 
and Low.” 

The next year was one of many experiences. Upon entering the seventh grade Miss 
Anna Martin took us in charge; but on account of poor health she was obliged to give up 
her task. A recent high-school graduate came to our rescue and acted as substitute until 
another teacher in the person of Miss Durler was procured. The months rolled by, and the 
week before the semester examinations found us without a teacher, for our last instructor 
had secretly disappeared, carrying with her many of our grades. We finished the year 
under the supervision of Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Carlton. Like a flock without a shepherd we 
had gone astray, following the primrose path of idleness and ease ; but Miss Wheatley soon 
led us back to the straight and narrow way. In fact, we became so diligent, and possessed 
of the spirit of helpfulness, that each and every one built a neat little home for the comfort 
of some feathered songster. At the end r ' lie year about thirty of us graduated into high 

After our Promotion Exercises we put away childish things ; the girls did up their hair 
and pieced down their dresses, while the boys bought brand-new suits with full-length 
trousers. We felt convinced that we were a most welcome addition to the High School, for 
we were received with loud applause and allowed to sing, “ Vive la Medina High ” at our 
first assembly period. Yes, and we have increased in popularity and numbers each succeed- 
ing year. When we were Freshmen we added to our class enrollment the names of Hettie 
Gill, Evelyn Krieger and Harold Harrington. Ruth Ferriman and Faye Sims became 
members of our Sophomore class; and when we were Juniors Elizabeth McDowell and Ralph 



Harrington decided to cast their lot with us. We have acquired such reputation thruout 
the county that this year Arthur McQuate and Carl Woodward, graduates oj^ Litchfield 
and Sharon respectively, asked permission to come to M. H. S. for the express purpose of 
graduating with our class. To be sure, with all these additions we are only twenty-two in 
number, hut we think quantity is so insignificant beside quality. For instance, we have a 
poetess, a Biblical authority, a jester minus cap and bells, a doctor, a fashion plate, an 
inspiring and aspiring musician, active Y. M. C. A. workers, disciplined cadets, sturdy 
foot-ball men, enthusiastic base-ball players plus rooters, and truly brainy as well as brawny 
fellows. It is with a feeling of regret that we are leaving our friends, and, as we separate, 
following different paths in life, we shall always cherish fond recollections of those happy 
days spent in dear old Medina High. 

A tapping bell and a crowd of noisy, carefree children aroused me from my dreams. 
I jumped from my perch and quickly slipped away, reproving myself for even imagining 
our class to be superior to any other. 



QUuhh tRbynu' 


We’re just about to say goodbye 
To our Alma Mater, Medina High. 

As we come out from ’neatli her wing 
We’re wondering what the years will bring. 

We all are sure to do something great; 
Nothing else can be our fate! 

But before we spread our wings to fly 
Please wait to hear me prophesy. 

Just look at Doc Damon over there; 

Already he has a professional air ! 

Prom his patience now, patients will come. 
Watch him! He will be going some. 

Here’s Bennett, the leader of our band, 
Who, I predict, will turn out grand ; 

And when his name heads the scroll of fame, 
How glad we’ll be that lie’s ours to claim. 

Sober and quiet, demure Clara Penn 
Seems as shy as a little brown wren ; 

But really, she is just full of life, 

And will make some man a dandy wife. 

Here are jolly Flo and laughing Lizz; 

When they take hold, things have to whiz; 
Where’er we are, when we hear their voice 
In spite of sorrow our hearts will rejoice. 

Cole, you say? Oh, he’ll win fame! 

No doubt he’ll invent an aeroplane. 

His studious mind and industrious hand 
We know will accomplish something grand. 

Emery Fisher’s our funny man. 

He’ll always do the best that he can 
To drive away our grief and sadness, 

And fill our hearts with joy and gladness. 

Harold Harrington knows how to write, 

In this, as all else, lie’s certainly bright. 

In years to come we’ll read his stuff, 

And never be able to get enough. 


Gllje Annual 

We’re proud of tall fair Geraldine. 

Sometime surely she will be seen 
Rivaling her namesake, G. Ferrar, 

As a blazing operatic star. 

Ralph already has won his name, 

And he’ll continue to win more fame 
As long as he cleverly draws the bow, 

And sweetly makes the music flow. 

Gardner too we all have seen, 

A bright star of the foot-ball team; 

And as he there kept up the strife, 

Just so he’ll play his part in life. 

Carlton will till the soil, they say, 

In a thoroughly scientific way. 

We'll call on him when we plan an “ eat;” 
He’ll surely give his old classmates a treat. 

Sims and Shane and Sidney High 
Will win their laurels by and by. 

They’ll climb the heights tho others fail; 

Their faults, we’ll ne’er have cause to wail. 

Our Evelyn Kreiger and Hettie Gill 
Will guide the children up Wisdom Hill. 

But alas, to marry her homliest beau 
Is the dismal fate of pretty Maude Lowe. 

Adams with his violincello 

Will make music, sweet and mellow, 

And his voice we’ll often hear 
In the village choir, near. 

Don’t forget Woodward and Arthur McQuate. 
We’re sorry they entered our class so late, 
With their music and cheer. Indeed, it’s clear 
For them no future we need to fear. 

Of myself I have little to say, 

Only this in a humble way : 

What’er my lot of work may be 
My duty clear I’ll try to see; 

Often my thoughts will turn to you all 
And the pleasant hours and joys recall. 

Then life will be more bright and clear 
For the happy days together here. 

This small class of twenty-two 
I promise you will aim to do 
The best they can in quiet ways, 

Nor duties shirk for want of praise; 

And as the days grow into years 
With hopes and joys and many fears, 

I trust Medina High “ Fourteen ” 

May ever be in memory green.

Senior Qllaaa ^tatiatira 



The Class of 1914 consists of eight girls and fourteen boys. It makes no record as to 
size, but it does contend that for quality it lias never been approached by any of its pred- 
ecessors. It has been experimented upon pedagogically by no less than thirty teachers, 
thirteen in the grades and seventeen in the high school. Miss Schmidt and Miss Beech are 
the star performers, for they are still alive after three years of service in its behalf. 

The youngest member of the class is Emery Fisher; the bantam weight is Geraldine 
Canavan, who, with a little help, can tip the beam at 113 lbs. Fred Adams has fought his 
way to the top by means of copious draughts of cold water, and now weighs 187 lbs. The 
combined weight of the whole twenty-two is over one and one-half tons. The average 
weight is 139 lbs., which is also the exact weight of Faye Sims and of Ruth Ferriman. The 
Class “ Skyjack ” is Harold Harrington, who looks down upon the others from the lofty 
height of six feet; the shortest is Evelyn Kreiger, who measures only five feet and three 
inches. Florence Thatcher is the tallest girl; Emery Fisher the shortest boy. Where we 
do bear away the palm is in the size — of our feet, although the author refrains from any 
personal remarks on the subject. 

Last fall we had eight men in the foot-ball squad, including t lie captain, and we now 
have four men out for baseball. Although we have not furnished as many men for athletics 
as last year’s braggarts, the quality of our delegates puts us far ahead of all others. 

Political feeling runs high amongst us. Sid High, as “ Teddy ” has five followers, 
while Bennett and Shane as Wilson and Bryan lead a delegation of six Democrats. We 
have also two “ Standpatters.” Among the girls there is a continual see-saw of hair-pull- 
ing and ear-chewing, for four are Suffragettes and four are Anti’s. 

We have eleven Congregationalists, three Methodists, two Disciples, one Episcopalian, 
one Baptist, one Lutheran, one United Brethren, one member of the Church of the Brethren, 
and one heathen. 

All in all, there’s class to this Class. 

JUNIORS — Top row, left to right: Louise Starr, James Thayer, Helen Tubbs, Fred Bohley. Second 
row: William Hobart, Dorothy Bradway, William Gates, Mildred Pettit. Third row: Ralph Stuart, Hazel 
Roberts, Lucile Allen, Manly Burgin. Fourth row: Joseph Seymour, Mabel Chidsey, Sadie Kernan, Nancy 
Watters’. Fifth row : Branch Pierce, Emanuel Tintsman, Genevieve Nichols, Dana Whipple. 

JUNIORS' — Top row: Beatrice Blakslee, Howard Warner, Alsetta Fretz, Julia Bailey. Second row: Ethel 
Kreiger, Ralph Waters, Doris Searles, Otto Morlock. Third row: Emily Clark, Marjorie Kindig, Lloyd Heath, 
Dessie Leatlierman. Fourth row: Ruth Burkett, Alfred Dannley, Harold Burnham, Orene Sherman. Fifth

In looking at the M. H. S. class of 1915 today one would scarcely recognize the care- 
free band of Freshmen who, in the fall of 1911, for the first time entered our magnificent 
educational structure as high-school pupils. Last but not least were we; for we entered 
with the overpowering number of seventy-seven, the largest class ever enrolled in M. H. S., 
and we were justly proud of our record. During our Freshman year we were faithfully 
watched over and cared for by Miss Sellers, who shared with us our first experience in M. H. 
S. Our idea of High School was to have our own way and a good time. The former was 
somewhat interfered with during the year, but vve carried out the latter to its highest 
degree, for we successfully “ pulled off ” five class parties and planned several others. Our 
high scholastic attainments were few and far between and can be found only by the most 
minute examination of ancient grade books, and our literary efforts are indeed “ gone but 
not forgotten,” as is likewise the splendid banquet at their close. At the end of this never- 
to-be-forgotten year we bade farewell to our noble superintendent, Mr. Carlton, to our 
patient instructor, Mr. Shade, to our coach and teacher, Mr. Beach, and hesitated between 
tears and smiles when we learned that our much-lovecl English teacher, Miss Beech, was to 
leave us for a year. We had now closed a year of high-school life, and, being the largest 

(Hlje Attttual 25 

class in the High School ever known in Medina, we felt that we had played an important 
part in the world’s current events. 

At the beginning of the second year perhaps the “ gayest ” bunch of “ young ” Sopho- 
mores that ever crossed the threshold entered the assembly room to meet and greet Miss 
O’Connor and with her help hold down this solemn chamber through the year in which we 
rounded the second curve of our course. This year we also welcomed to our midst our 
superintendent, Mr. Edmund, Miss Crockett, and Miss Swisher. Though perhaps less 
violent, our gayety was not in the least diminished, and came to a grand climax in the High 
School ball given in March at the suggestion of the Sophs. Now with a start of surprise 
we discovered that our race was half finished and that we were already Juniors. 

On entering this year we left behind us our first guardian Miss Sellers (who decided 
that she liked our fair city but, though remaining in it, preferred to alter her name and 
occupation), our principal, Mr. Smith, and Miss Swisher; but in their stead came Miss 
Feeney, Miss Beech, Mr. Stear, and Mr. Godlove. On Miss Beech’s return we persuaded 
Mr. Edmund that she really needed our care and protection and so she has spent the year 
with us in “ our little room down stairs,” bearing with us our trials and tribulations and 
helping us in all our tasks from beautifying our room with ferns and flowers to elevating 
our minds with Shakespeare, Homer, etc. We have had fewer “ doings ” this year than in 
those preceding, but it has been no less enjoyable; and when its door closes we shall all 
feel that one of the most memorable years of our life has been shut behind. 

In these three years of high-school life we have been taught by fourteen different 
teachers, Miss Schmidt being the only one who has been with us all the time. From seventy- 
seven our number has diminshed to forty-one. Many and varied are the reasons for its 
decrease; some have been called from us for more important business, others have moved 
to different towns, and still others on account of convenient nervous breakdowns have been 
compelled to seek more quiet and healthful surroundings. In athletics we have never 
failed to furnish the teams with representatives worthy of praise, while the rest of us 
shouted ourselves hoarse from bleachers and side-lines. 

And now “ not at the top but climbing,” the class of 1915 stands ready to start down 
the home stretch as grave and reverend Seniors.

Considering ourselv'es from every point of view we appear to be a very hearty class 
of youngsters.

A glance at last year’s Annual shows that our original Freshman number was forty- 
seven. Many of these are gone, and at the present time we boast only thirty-five; for 
Raymond Case and Lloyd Leatherman dropped out about the middle of the year. 

When we came into this High School in 1912, the Board of Education, realizing that 
an exceptional class was entering, made every effort possible to provide for our comfort. 
They carried this careful consideration to the extent of putting Miss Pearl Sellers, now 
Mrs. Wm. Hammerschmidt, in charge of our room. That first year was a sad one to us 
for at every turn some Junior like Fisher was continually scaring us, or hitting us with a 
wooden eraser. That is all changed now. You ought to see how we make those “ Eighth 
Grade Freshmen ” “ walk chalk.” They even shine our shoes and brush our clothes with- 
out our bidding. 

We have our Best girl always with us. Our Faith never falters. We learned in Latin 
that rex means king; so we rejoice that we have two scions of royalty amongst us. We 
have a Shepard to watch our flock, a Sargeant to drill us, a Leach to cure us; in fact, we 
will not Hyde from you that we consider the Class of 1916 the bright and shining light of 
old Medina High!

The next year we began our school life under Miss Dawley. During the year, Inez 
Brockway came into our class. In our second year several were promoted into the third 
grade, and, at the same time, Margaret Borger and Amy Slater entered the class. The 
following year, Lester Campbell and Harold Baque were added to our number, but several 
others were taken from us so that the total remained nearly the same. The year after, our 
last in the primary grades, we lost several of our former classmates, but none which are 
now with us entered the class at that time. 



In the fifth grade, Welthene Fenn and Ethel Sprankle joined ns. The next year we 
went to the High School building for the first time, having been in the I. 0. 0. F. Temple 
the previous year. Elizabeth Branch and Raymond Bennett entered that year, but as usual 
we lost several others. During our seventh year eleven pupils left their former class for 
ours. The names are as follows : 

Mahlon Walker Helen Hunt 

Marie Hurlebaus Harold Hedges 

Gladys Shepard Derwin Nettleton 

Mabel Thompsett 

Not all of the above came to stay, however, as we have only six of them with us now. 

In our last year in the grades we began school in the High School building, but soon 
moved to the newly finished Garfield building. That year also a large number joined the 
class : 

Ruth Gill Ruth Gilbert Bryan Case 

Zola Turner Floyd Baylor Harold Waite 

Bryan Gray 

In the spring we were saddened by the death of Floyd Baylor. 

During our eight years in the grades we had three superintendents: J. R. Ivennan, 
C. C. Carlton, and W. S. Edmund. Our regular teachers not already mentioned were Miss 
McDougall, Miss Tubbs, Mrs. Wright, Miss Warner, Miss Lacy, Miss Drake, and Miss 

The September after our graduation from the eighth grade we found our way into the 
Freshman room where Miss Feeney was given charge of us. As had happened once before 
a large number left their former class of school for oui’s. Three of them, Neal Rosbon, 
Gertrude Sprankle and Paul Taylor, have since left school, and one, Wilbur Arick, denies 
that he is a Freshman although he prefers to sit in our Freshman room. 

All through our school life our classmates have been constantly changing until now 
very few of the original group remain. At the end of our Freshman year we have the 
following fifty members :

Most of the class of 1918 have the proud distinction of having begun their existence 
with the twentieth century. When five years of our life had been spent, we started to kind- 
ergarten under the direction of Miss Ella. There we learned, after many hard trials, to 
build sand castles and mold clay into different models. Some of the original class consisted 
of the following: 

Walter Leach Eleanor Wright Percy Fenn 

Esther Wertz Marian Fisher Helen Bigelow 

Edna Swain Vesta Johnson Max High 

Pauline Griesinger 

As we went through the Primary and Grammar grades most of us displayed the usual 
ability, but our exceptions were the precocious personages of Professors Kellogg and 
Clement, the latter a suffragist. We finished our Grammar grade career under the careful 
guidance of Miss Wheatley, from whom we learned not only some of the mysteries of 
arithmetic and the other “ necessities,” but also that it is a sin to shoot paper wads, and 
to chew gum. 

Don’t forget that we were the first class to graduate in January, after having galloped 
through a year’s work in four and one-half months’ time. After the harrowing experiences 
of initiation, we started our topsy-turvy journey through High School with the following 
enrollment :

We have a “ Bud ” (Munson, who is 3 ft.) and a “ Flower ” (Gardner, who is 8 ft.) 
and are ever kept merry by Cherry (Bennett). We are always on the Wright (Eleanor) 
track because we have two Warners (Isabelle and Bessie). 

Let us all hope that we shall see all these Freshmen graduate from the Medina High 
in 1918.

The football prospects for the season of 1913 were quite hopeful before the first two 
games. After these, which were defeats, the team seemed to lose courage; but in the next 
game, which was against Wadsworth H. S., the good spirits again returned and seemed 
to stay off and on during the remainder of the season, which was summed up to be about as 
successful as any that M. H. S. had had in football. The scores of the different games 
were as follows : 

CuyahogaFls 14 M.H.S. 0 Ravenna 26. .. .M.PI.S. 19 Ashland 0 M.H.S. 46

Wadsworth 5... M.H.S. 41 Mansfield 44... M.H.S. 0 Wooster 0 M.H.S. 7 

The total number of defeats was 5, of victories 4, and the total number points scored 
M. H. S. 134, adversaries, 133. The line up playing the most games was as follows: 
Backs — Bennett, Boliley, Sargent, Chamberlain. 

Ends — High, Roshon. 

Tackles — Damon, Gardner. 

Guards — Harrington, Leatherman. 

Centers — Long, Pierce. 

Substitutes — Carlton, R. Case, Longacre, Greisinger, Nixon, Stanley, Whipple, C.

Blue, indeed, was the outlook for the team of 1914, when, for the first time, the bunch 
of rookies stood upon the diamond. Gone were those famed sluggers of the year preceding, 
the best M. H. S. has ever produced. “ Who can fill the places of Walton, House, Brought, 
Lowe, Maple and Snedden 1 ?” we asked. But it doesn’t look so bad now. Of the nine games 
thus far played, six have been victories, and only two defeats.

The orchestra has worked hard during the winter months, an average of one evening 
a week being spent in consistent practice. Each member has done his best to give individ- 
ually the finest quality of music and to increase the efficiency and promote the welfare of 
the orchestra as a unit. We are justly proud of our work and the class of music which we 
play. Quarrels, disputes and hard feelings have been entirely absent from our midst. 

We wish to express publicly our sincerest gratitude to our kind friends who have 
opened their hearts and their homes that we might have pleasant places in which to meet, 
and who have expended their time, labor, and money to make the evenings enjoyable. 
Without the social part of our meetings, the orchestra would have fared badly. We wish 
you to know that Mrs. Thatcher’s doughnuts and coffee, Mrs. White’s popcorn crisp and 
Mrs. Dannley’s cookies and cocoa are the best we ever tasted. 

We have done our best. Our work is done, our practices over. For some of us this 
marks the end of our High School career, but avc will always remember the High School 
orchestra with pleasure. R. H. H. 


It is with no little pride that we speak of the chorus. It has added so much to our own pleasure, and so much to our reputation, both at home 
and abroad that whenever we think of The Chorus it is with keen satisfaction. No musical organization succeeds of its own accord and this is no 
exception. The credit for making this organization what it is, belongs to Mrs. Boult, whose untiring energy and unfailing enthusiasm, added to her 
inspiring leadership, have brought this high standard to the singers of Medina Hi.

Master Sidney is sitting in the big arm chair, apparently deeply buried in a book, but 
every now and then he closes it and starts to get up. Then after some deliberation he again 
resumes his seat and opens the volume. Finally with firm resolve written all over his manly 
features he slams the book shut, het* up and strides to the telephone. He hesitates, and 
then jerks the receiver from the hook. 

“ Hem-hem, give me 4-3-2-GIv, if you please.” 

His heart is pounding like an old steam engine. His voice almost leaves him. 

“ Yes, yes, hello ! Who is this? ” 

“ Oh — why — Is Mary there? ” 

“ Well, may — may I talk to her? ” 

His hands are shaking so hard that he can hardly hold the receiver. 

“ Oh, hello, is this you, Mary? ” 

“ It’s a nice day, ain’t it? ” 

“ Yes.” 

“ Say, where were you today? I didn’t see you at school.” 

“ Gee, that was too bad.” 

A long silence follows in which Sidney’s mouth commences to feel like the Sahara 

“ Say, Mary, do you know they’re going to have a pie social at the school house 
to-night? ” 

Now is the critical moment; he summons all his courage to his aid. 

“ Don’t you want to go with me? ” 

“ Well, I’ll be round at your place at 6 :30. Goodbye.” He had done it ! He walks back 
to his chair, sits down, and reopens his book. He heaves a sigh and a happy grin spreads 
itself over his face.

“ There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” 1 believe this must 
be t he basis upon which the spiritualists work. You would pooh-pooh a ghost story if it 
was told in broad daylight, but I dare say that if you heard the same story out beside the 
dying embers of a camp-fire, with the blaze casting flickering shadows on the moaning 
pines, you would have a different, and perhaps a more hair-raising, conception of the tale. 

The medium’s room where we met was without light, except that which came in 
through the door that led to a darkened corridor, and after fifteen of us had arrived 



— Maclame Sure never allowed more than fifteen in one of her seances — the door was 
closed and the apartment became pitch dark. (She said that she could not control the 
spirits if there was any light present.) 

When finally, after saying the Lord’s Prayer and singing “ Lead, Kindly Light,” all 
became so silent that I wanted to choke my watch for ticking so loud, a ghostly moaning 
voice broke the hush with the words, “ Is there an Elizabeth Aonman among you? ” The 
spirit of her mother is waiting to be heard.” I heard a half-sob at my right and a young 
lady, whom I had noticed as wearing mourning when she entered, feebly responded. 

A faint quavering voice issued from somewhere, “ Ah, Bess, ’t is you. How I have 
longed to speak to you and tell you not to sorrow for me. 1 am happy here in the spirit 
world, for each day 1 watch over you.” The voice continued and admonished her daughter 
to go to mass and above all to attend seances regularly, that she might speak to her. 

One after another was spoken to by some deceased relative and 1 began to think of 
going. In a moment of silence, like a cloudburst from a clear sky came the words, u Is 
Lawrence Cole here?” My heart leaped to my throat. If some one had knocked every 
breath out of my body I could have replied about as well. 1 managed, however, to whisper 
a faint “ Yes,” and waited. 

The voice came from somewhere in the front of the room. “ 1 am your great-grand- 
father, whom you have never seen. For more than sixty years, I have tried to get into 
communication with some one whom I might trust. Long ago, when your mother was but 
a child I withdrew from the bank, without the knowledge of any member of my family, a 
sum of $6000. There had been rumors for months that the bank might fail and I was 
determined to make some provision for my loved ones. I took the money, which was in 
three sacks, and after all had fallen asleep that night, I buried it along with my will, under 
a big boulder in the pasture, just west of the barn. Afterwards I took my spade and pick 
back to the tool house. When I was but a little distance away, something seemed to grip 
my throat, a mist came over my eyes, and I fell to the ground. In falling I struck my head 
on a rock at the edge of the path, and there breathed my last. If you will go to the big 
boulder now you will find the gold. God speed you, my son. Farewell.” The voice was 

Immediately the room filled with light, and I knew the seance was over. I rubbed my 
blinking eyes, donned my cap and took a car for the Suburban station. I had visions of 
wealth easily earned; but I was soon to be disillusioned. 

When I told it to Mother I was fairly laughed out of the house. Her grandfather had 
died of pneumonia, and had never lived on a farm. So this is the first time I have told 
the story. But a theme is a theme, and, rather than go without, I determined to let the 
secret out. 


Ever since this earth has been covered with enough suitable material to make war 
interesting, there has been conflict. Battles great and battles small have been fought 
between men; some with holy reasons, some wth unholy reasons, some with just reasons, 
some with unjust reasons, some against fellow-men, some against beasts, some against the 
wild elements. No, not a nation can be found which has enjoyed the ignorance of war. 
But in our peaceful country the pugnacious element is reduced to a minimum, although in 
certain people certain characteristics show up which indicate the warlike spirit inherent 
in the race. 



In the course of the world’s history we find, in a simple country community, two boys, 
who, for a short period, were seized with the fascinating desire for war. They drew their 
plans; they fashioned their artillery; they placed their redoubts. They saw ahead the 
repetition of Gettysburg but they were destined to a second Waterloo. 

There was nothing unusual in the local atmosphere this first day of July when our 
friends were entertaining their warlike mood. The rising sun promised an ideal summer 
day. The gentle breeze, conveying the pleasant odor of the clover plants and swaying to 
and fro the golden wheat, did not give any special encouragement to the idea of battle. 
Why not use this fine day in a more pleasant 1113111101'“? Why mar the cheerfulness of the 
morning with the sorrows of war? No, they had set their purpose; they would carry out 
their plan. They retired to the woodshed for preparation, and, after a deal of consultation, 
appeared at the orchard gate, equipped for battle. Their artillery consisted of two well 
carved shingle paddles, a large jug half filled with water, and a long willow pole. 

Column right, forward march ! and they are off across the orchard, which does not yet 
supply them with an inducement to tarry, thru the cornfield where roasting ears are yet 
to come, and arrive at their point of attack in the open havfield which has been recently 
cleared of its summer crop. 

They look at each other with an air of dignity and point to an insignificant spot on 
the ground which would be ordinarily mistaken for an overturned stubble. With the jug 
in place a few feet from the spot the younger warrior at his elder’s command lightly 
touches the place of attention and in immediate response a savage bumblebee comes forth 
to accept the challenge for battle. By the dextrous handling of the paddles this gentleman 
is escorted to the mouth of the jug where he willingly retires to an unknown fate. Again 
the enemy is disturbed and again forth comes a single warrior, confident of waylaying the 

But one at a time would never do. Such infrequent slaughter was not enough to satisfy 
the cold hearts of these determined fighters. They were in for war and it must come 
quickly. A sharp punch with the pole into the rebels’ nest brought about the desired result. 
From the ground arose a mass of bees spreading in all directions, much in the form of a 
miniature volcano. They beheld the marauders and maneuvering their entire force in that 
direction gave vent to battle royal. 

In response to the attack, paddles were swung viciously to and fro, and bits of shat- 
tered air flew wildly about. Two large straw hats served both as ensigns and reserve 
artillery. The bees attacked the young gallants at every corner, at ankles, on hands, ba^k 
of the neck and on the nose; not one opportunity was given them to surrender or retract. 
The situation became more and more unsettled; what was the proper thing to do“? They 
tried to think, at the same time jumping several feet in ti e air and waving their arms like 
discontended and rebellious pendulums. Conclusions were scarce, but finally as awakening 
from a trance they swept across the field in the hope of finding some distant place wherein 
these terrible insects could not exist. 

Down thru the bright cheerful cornfield their retreat leads them. Dinner bell simul- 
taneously ringing tells the presence of an important hour. Important ! Not enough to cause 
these ambitious warriors to discontinue their employment. But on and on, over hills and 
thru valleys their mission bids them follow. The cows reclining in the pleasant shade of a 
clump of maples reminded them of the rest they so desired and the glories of war died out 
while the virtues of peace shone brightly. 

Not long could their minds dwell on this subject for they must find retreat from their 
fearful enemies. Ahead was a thicket of elder underbrush. It seemed, in the minds of our 
young friends, to have been put there by the hand of fate for their deliverance. Surely 
beyond this barrier could no vile insects live. A leap, a crash, and we must transfer our 
camera to the other side. Rolling, bumping and tumbling down a steep grassy hill migrated 



our heroes in their newly discovered world. A splash and they floundered in a shallow 
pond. Thoroughly soaked they came out of the water but met no enemy. They here found 
peace and have since kept it.

Die deutsche Sprache ist ein sehr interessantes und vorteilhaftes Studium. Es gibt 
viele Ursache dafur: 

Die Gesehichten, die man in den deutschen Klassen best, sind beinahe alle interessant. 
Zum Beispiel, wer hat u Immensee ” nicht genossen? Hatten wir alle nicht Reinhardt und 
Elizabeth gern, und waren wir alle nicht traurig als Elizabeth Erick lieiratete? 

Diese Gesehichten werden alle von den besten Yerfasser geschrieben und deshalb sind 
einige der Gemme der deutschen Literatur. Obgleich wir “ Das Lied von der Glocke ” nicht 
sehr genossen haben, doch ist es Schillers beruhmtestes Gedicht, und enthielt viele schone 
und lehrreiche Gedanken. 

Es gibt nocli andere Bucher die wir gelesen haben, die lelirreich sind. “ Wilhelm Tell ” 
zeight uns vieles von der Geshichte Deutschlands und von der Bedingung des Yolkes. Das 
Lesen von solchen Buchern als “ Im Vaterland ” und “ Gluck Auf ” gibt uns die Sitten 
und Gebrauclie des deutschen Yolkes sowohl die Marchen und Aberglaube desselben. 

Tn dem Studium von soldi einem Buehe wie “ Bilder aus der Deutschen Literatur ” 
finden wir viele Geschichte und Gedichte, die sehr gut und interessant sind. Lines Gedicht, 
das mit viel interessiert, ist “ Mignon ” von Goethe. 

Dieses Lied ist ein Teil von Goethes Buch “ Wilhelm Meister.” Wilhelm Meister, der 
Held, findet ein Kind, das ihn, unter einer Gesellschaft von Seiltanzer, sehr viel anzieht. 
Einmal als der Herr der Gesellschaft sie selling, wurde Wilhelm zornig und er kaufte das 
Kind. Ihm Avar sie sehr dankbar und tat alles fur ihn das sie konnte. Ihr Vaterland war 
Italien, und als sie nocli sehr klein war, wurde sie von ihren Eltern gestohlen. Jetzt erin- 
nert sie sich ihrer prachtigen Heimat und des goldenen Landes wo alles sclion sei. Sie 
wollte da sein und so sang sie das Lied das so sclion ist und das bei \ T ielen Leuten so Abel 

“ Kennst du das Land, avo die Citronen bluhn? ” 

Also habe ich Deutscli gern weil es mir geholfen hat; weil es ein wichtiges Studium ist; 
und weil es interessant ist.

If while perusing the pages of this department you should happen to meet something 
familiar, please, out of sympathy toward the editor hereof, do not let the fact be known. 
Maintain a calm and peaceful facial expression. There is but little originality here. 
Most of the material has been “ swiped ” or u suggested. ” However, before throwing 
yourself blindly into the clutches of this Joy Column, I wish to impress upon your 
mind that “ reading maketh a full man.” Keep this constantly before you and do not allow 
yourself t he disgrace of intoxication. Furthermore I would suggest that all corpulent 
persons remember the proverb which tells the effect of laughing, and therefore restrain 
from unseemly mirth. 

Any one who leaves the doors of our educational institution with a diploma under his 
arm may, without exception, he looked upon as a perfect gentleman and one who is thor- 
oughly trained in etiquette. A certain alumnus was milking one night, and after having 
finished with two or three cows Avas called from the barn. Upon returning, having forgot- 
ten where he left off, he sat down to one of the animals he had already milked. On discov- 
ering his mistake he gracefully arose, and with hat in hand, exclaimed, “ Oh, I beg your 
pardon.” (Mallet Creek papers please copy.) 

The Annual is a great invention, 

The school gets all the fame, 

The printer gets the money, 

But the staff, — it gets the blame. 

Some men are born Hunkers, others attain a flunk, and some have it forced upon them.

Miss Crockett : — Your answer is about as clear as mud.

The parsons heap upon my head 
Tales of brimstone when we’re dead, 

Of fire and smoke and demons red 
And wicked souls to torture led. 

But I’ve a thought that’s all my own 
From the seeds of ripe experience grown, 

That man gets all the H — that’s goin’ 

Before his soul from earth has flown.

Sims: — Are you going up to hear the lecture on the appendix 1 ? 

Bennett : — No, I’m tired of these organ recitals.

Miss Beech: — What kind of an education did Mark Twain receive"? 

Hettie Gill : — He didn’t go to school after he quit. 

Sid High : — I’ve just bought a new Balmacaan with pockets so big I can put any book 
I ever studied in them. 

S. Burgin : — I can put any I ever studied in my watch pocket. 

“ Red ” Stanley : — I speak two languages, English and Profane. 

Director Harrington: — (At orchestra rehearsal) Haven’t you got a rest there? 

Fred Adams : — Yes. 

D. H. :— Well, play it. 

The Freshmen are like breezes, 

They swiftly come and go, 

They puff themselves immensely, 

And blow, and blow, and blow. 

A Sophomore is like a kerosene lamp; not especially bright, is turned down once in a 
while, smokes occasionally, and goes out nights. 

A green little Junior, in his green little way, 

Tried a chemical mixture, for fun one day, 

And now the tender grasses do tenderly wave 
Over the green little Junior’s green little grave.

We heard him fiercely hiss,

It is self-evident that our superintendent’s esthetic mind seldom travels in musical 
channels. He was informed over the ’phone by Director Harrington that the High School 
Orchestra would play Sextette from “ Lucia ” at the Teachers’ Institute, but it appeared 
on the programme as “ Side-Lights from Lucia.”

As Harrington needs more shortness, 
As Cole must needs be tall,

As a rule a Freshman is about the most gallant person to be found; but things appar- 
ently have undergone a radical change. A certain chunky little Freshman has laid aside 
all social rules and customs. He asked a charming young classmate of his to attend a class 
party with him, and, much to her sorrow, she consented. He failed to pay her carfare, or 
even purchase her some chewing grim, and it became necessary for the poor thing to prevail 
upon the charity of a friend, who supplied the unfortunate one with a sufficient amount of 
funds to meet the expenses.

The misunderstanding of words frequently causes strange answers. “ Skinny ” Ben- 
nett had been taught that Socrates had a wife who was unpleasant to him, and that the 
great philosopher drank hemlock. When Miss Crockett asked him the cause of Socrates’ 
death, he replied : 

“ Socrates died of an overdose of wedlock.” 

Yes, words may sound alike, yet have 
Dissimilar meanings maybe :

From just a week old baby !

A hug — Every thing gone to waste. 

It certainly is healthy for one to partake freely of Aqua Pura; but when one stores up 
(or down) a gallon or more at the end of every forty minutes it is going to the extreme. 
Furthermore, it takes so long to drink a gallon of just plain water that no one else has time 
to quench his thirst without being late to class. I would therefore suggest that some one 
with an inventive turn of mind provide a pocket drinking-fountain for Fred Adams, or 
prevail upon the school board to permit him to carry the fire-hose around with him. 

We understand that Clayton Carlton wants a Packard (automobile).

Young Men and 
Young Women 

COMMENCE your life right by starting a banking account on the 
Endowment or Limited Life plan with the World’s Largest Financial 
Institution — The New York Life Insurance Company — to secure you, 
and by so doing lay the foundation for systematic savings, thrift, and a 
substantial sum due 10, 15, or 20 years from now — just when it will 
be needed most — and in the meantime give you the safest and most 
reliable protection it is possible to get. Don’t put off looking into the 
proposition, but take Dr. Talmadge’s advice: "Start young.”
